The UConn community will soon enjoy The Storrs Wine & Spirits shop as a new addition to the developing Storrs Center. Storrs Wine & Spirits will be located at 109 Royce Circle. Friends and co-owners of Storrs Wine & Spirits, Dil Bhandari and Nitya Poudel, are anticipating the opening of their store this November.
“Once approved by the state, the student community will be able to find us on Facebook, and they will be able to place special requests and orders for their upcoming events,” said Bhandari. This establishment will sell a varied selection of liquor and beer, providing Storrs residents with a conveniently located place to shop. Poudel stated that they will do their best to “serve UConn and the Storrs community with the best selection of fine wines, seasonal and crafted beers, and liquors at very reasonable prices.” The owners of this business have been in the industry of wines and spirits for approximately five years, and they believe that it takes dedicated customer service to be successful in a retail business. “It is a great opportunity and honor in itself to be a part of the UConn and Storrs family,” said Bhandari.
“Thirsty Thursday” is popular at UConn and the store is sure to enjoy enthusiastic business ventures among the of-age student body, as well as of residents who are interested in extending their knowledge — and palates — of wines and beers. Storrs Center is a growing Main Street area for Storrs residents, with a downtown that is conveniently located next to campus and is accessible to pedestrians. With establishments like Sweet Emotions candy shop, the Dog Lane Café, and restaurants ranging from casual to upscale, it is coming together to create a comfortable ambiance for college students and Mansfield residents. Students will be able to ask employees at this establishment for their opinions and advice concerning libations, food pairings and appropriate beverages for special occasions.
Storrs Wine & Spirits’ hours will be open according to the states regulations, and will be ready to provide the community with enthusiastic service in a month’s time.
